Arrigoni wants courageous Cesena

Cesena boss Daniele Arrigoni insists that his side won’t park the bus when they take on Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.

The Stadio Manuzzi outfit will be desperate to net at least a point in the capital as they look to avoid relegation.

However, Arrigoni has maintained that his Seahorses won’t simply try to contain the Giallorossi threat.

“Roma play a brand of football that we are not used to in Italy,” the former Bologna tactician noted in today’s pre-match Press conference.

“They keep the ball as well as playing with great aggressiveness. They play good stuff, but they risk a lot.

“We have to do well to break up their play. But we can’t just sit back and wait for them. We have to play with courage and determination.”

Arrigoni has admitted recently that he is pondering a tactical change, but that won’t be on show tomorrow.

“I’ve said that I am working on moving to a three-man defence, but we won’t use that in Rome. I prefer to stay with four for now.”

Cesena squad – Goalkeepers: 1 Antonioli, 88 Ravaglia.

Defenders:  2 Rodriguez, 6 Lauro, 13 Rossi, 16 Comotto, 25 Von Bergen, 28 Benalouane, 77 Ceccarelli, 81 Moras.

Midfielders: 5 Guana, 8 Candreva, 14 Colucci, 15 Martinho, 18 Parolo.

Forwards: 7 Eder, 10 Mutu, 11 Rennella, 55 Martinez, 70 Bogdani.
